The Senalese-American pop star, who will be performing at Gurgaon’s Huda Grounds on Saturday — also his 38th birthday — can’t stop singing praises for actor Shah Rukh Khan for letting him sing a track in Ra.One. "It was a great experience working with Shah Rukh, and we have become good friends," says the singer-rapper. Ask him if that means Indian films are on the cards, and he says, "One day, if the opportunity presents itself, I’d welcome the chance to star in a Bollywood film!"



Meanwhile, he doesn’t mind starring Indian girls in his videos. "Of course (I’m open to it), India has the most beautiful girls in the world," he raves. Prod him for names and ask him if Priyanka Chopra, whom he has met, is one of them, and he plays safe. "Well, not sure. Bollywood is full of so many beautiful women!"



AkonThe singer, whose India tour is being organised by Suniel Shetty’s NGO and Netsurf Entertainment, says he loves all the drama in Hindi cinema. "I enjoy the dance and music in Bollywood films, but no, I have no particular favourite," he says.
